this is a good phone in my opinion,i am in trinidad and have android 1.6 on phone,having the latest android version is not a priority for me,i use most of the features and even downloaded many apps from android market over wifi,i only need bluetooth for headset(i use data cable with my computer),the cube can be placed with other widgets by dragging it over,the three home screens are customizable,camera,flash for night shots works good,battery life good,music from player sounds good on speaker and headphones,---no complaints,good phone.
this is a good phone no problems about it but the upgrade disappoints me they said it will come to 2.1 or something so i can't use bluetooth but i love it use bhman rom that doesn't have touchwiz its very fast and link2sd so you will download many application i love playing movie on this phone the amoled was great..
ali, 08 Apr 2010I own this phone and it works 5 times faster if you install PANDAHOME from the market. I'm not... moreor, better yet just install a whole new ROM. the 1.6 over the air update without touchwiz works perfectly and is rooted. Battery life and speed are much better than stock ROM, even than the stock OTA update to 1.6 that came out in July.
peacegirl113, 10 Jun 2010i wonder how great this phone is at going on facebook.The Android FB app is a browser-enhancement, meaning it uses the mobile version of the regular FB page to show a lot of it's content. It's not as seamless as the iPhone app, but I haven't had problems doing what I want to. And with real multitasking, it means I get real time updates instead of having to use text msgs or email notification.
cant wait to use this fone......i feel its better so far. i used Iphone and this is the next big thing. No doubts
yayo, 28 Apr 2010Bluetooth seems to be not working.. cannot send and cannot receive file through bluetooth. Its... moreIf you find out how to send or recieve via bluetooth please let me know. I talked to customer care, and they said the phone was not capable, although it was my understanding when I bought the phone that it was. You can download the bluetooth file transfer under apps but the phone doesn't accept the file cause it needs firmware 2.0, and I believe the phone runs 1.5 firmware.
Todd, 13 May 2010anyone know when this P.O.S. of a phone is getting new firmware?I would like to know the answer to your question also.
peacegirl113, 10 Jun 2010i wonder how great this phone is at going on facebook.Android has an official Facebook app. This is an okay phone, its best feature is its AMOLED screen. However, it lacks RAM which will cause slowdowns.
its alright i find tht it doesn't hold a charge but for a few hrs...and gets very hot...not bad 6/10
becos you need to add the other device that you want to send or recieve file via bluetooth! add them first before sending or recieving thankss!!
can someone please tell me how to transfer files from my phone to another via bluetooth? I can turn my bluetooth on and even connect to another device, but transferring files is my problem. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
Bluetooth seems to be not working.. cannot send and cannot receive file through bluetooth. Its searchable but still sending is failed..
i have this phone ,but i don now,my phone is too hot(oven)battery is new,phone also,what can i do? Tnks
I own this phone and it works 5 times faster if you install PANDAHOME from the market. I'm not kidding in terms of speed, its that much. The touchwiz really slows down the system but installing the pandahome really speeds things up while keeping some good things that samsungs programmers have added [ like sim contact management, good camera software, quick access to gps, bluetooth, wifi settings from the pull down menu.
i've had the phone about two weeks now and i've found that it slows down if....
1-you boot it while on charger.
2-you mess with it before it's fully booted.
if it's dragging because of this, simply re-boot again and give it 2 minutes before you even touch it.
my only complaints are the vertical keyboard and the native apps that are un removable. i suppose having root will allow removal of the apps like "where's waldo" or "diner dash".
I'm a noob, so rooting is a strict "follow the destruction s" process for me. and I havnt seen very good info out there so I'm not trying to brick it.
